If you want incorrect battle reports on llamaserver I saw one recently. The game is MadCradle2. Look into turn 30, Shinuyama attacking Bandar capitol. Shinuyama won, but battle replay shows differently (at least from the perspective of a Caelian scout). There are no mindless SCs here, if that's the only thing you want to look into.

No that's right. I'm the Shin player in that game, and I saw the same discrepancy between report and replay.

It's probably because of the random number generator, right? I'm running the game on windows and I suppose the llamaserver runs on linux?

I know that C's RNG doesn't guarantee getting the same numbers on different platforms. I don't know how would you go about random numbers when making a game such as this. Would you make your own RNG? There are several RNGs on Boost site that are pseudo-random like C's RNG, but that do guarantee same numbers on different platforms.

They have written their own RNG. For a long time, dating back to Dom2 there were occasional problems with the battle replay between platforms. It was also common when different versions were used.

This version of the bug appears even in SP on one machine, so it's obviously not a platform or version issue.
